Incorrect wxWidgets Version
Audacity 2.x below 2.1.2 requires wxWidgets 2.8.12
You most likely reached this page from an incorrectly built version of Audacity that uses wxWidgets 3.0 or later.
Audacity 2.x below 2.1.2 should be compiled with the previous stable release of wxWidgets (2.8.12) which is still available on http://wxwidgets.org/downloads/. Ubuntu and Linux Mint users who do not want to compile Audacity are recommended to try installing an unofficial PPA build of Audacity 2.1.0 or 2.1.1 release compiled against wx2.8.12.
